Women play a vital role in war, conflict resolution, peace-building and post-war reconstruction, despite facing significant societal and gender-based barriers.

Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine is a case in point. Thousands of Ukrainian women joined the armed forces, including on the front lines. Women-led civic organisations in Ukraine play a crucial role in providing essential services. Yet, despite progress made towards gender-based equality, women are not equally involved in planning and formal decision-making. Moreover, women and girls experience a heightened risk of sexism, violence, scarcity of food and access to finance.

The event will assess the role and needs of women, take stock of lessons learned in Ukraine, and propose solutions for greater empowerment of women and girls.
 

Participation is open to EPC members, WIIS members, FNF network, the media, and officials from international organisations.
